  1. Can you use system variables in a .reg file? I can't get %HOME% or %USERPROFILE% to work correctly.... Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Hummingbird\Connectivity\9.00\Exceed] "UserDir"="\\\\SRVATD2\\HOME\\%USERPROFILE%\\Application Data\\Hummingbird\\Connectivity\\9.00\\Exceed\\"
  2. The OE icon doesn't actually get created until the user logs on the first time, so you'll have to run the script during the GUI stage when the user is logging on. I have a 2nd script that yanks that shortcut after the 1st reboot. Same goes for Remote Assistance.
  3. Anyone have some tips on this? So far I've tried: I ran the setup.exe and grabbed a folder containing Kerio Personal Firewall.msi out of my temp directory. (I grabbed the entire folder) Tried a /qb switch with failed because Instal Script was not installed. There is an ISScript10.msi which I ran with /qb successfully Now, a /qb on the KPF.msi runs fine, but the system service is not started automatically after boot. Anyone got some ideas?
  4. No I hadn't, but since I'm calling this through RunOnceEx I just added the Firefox.cmd as another item under the general "Cleaning Up" item and it seems to work ok. Thanks though.
  5. I'm so close to done with my disc, so this is driving me crazy. When I get to cleanup.cmd most of it runs perfectly, until I get to a point where I call another batch file. I see that batch file open and close and then my cleanup.cmd gets stuck and I have to manually click the X to close it, and nothing below my call to the other batch file is run. Here's the script below, any help would be great. REM------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- REM Setup Firefox Associations REM------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- start /wait %systemdrive%\install\Applications\Firefox\Firefox.cmd REM------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- REM Remove unnecessary directories REM------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ATTRIB -R "%systemdrive%\My Shared Folder" /s /d ATTRIB -R "%systemdrive%\Install" /s /d ATTRIB -R "%systemdrive%\OfficeTEMP" /s /d ATTRIB -R "%systemdrive%\McAfee" /s /d SET KEY=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx REG ADD %KEY% /V TITLE /D "Finishing Cleanup" /f REG ADD %KEY%\200 /VE /D "Removing installation files" /f REG ADD %KEY%\200 /V 1 /D "CMD /C RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\Install\" /f REG ADD %KEY%\200 /V 2 /D "CMD /C RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\OfficeTEMP\" /f REG ADD %KEY%\200 /V 3 /D "CMD /C RD /S /Q %systemdrive%\McAfee\" /f shutdown.exe -R -F -T 90 -c "Restarting in 1 minute and 30 seconds" EXIT The problem seems to come in after firefox.cmd gets called. One other question, if I make a batch file with: shutdown.exe -r -f -t 90 -c "Restarting in 1 minute and 30 seconds" and open it on the desktop it doesn't work. But if I type it at the command line it works fine. Any ideas? Thanks.
  6. I didn't know that. I assumed since the definitions of 2.6 were always updated that it'd be ok. I'll probably go pick up a copy today.
  7. That didn't seem to work. I still get the "Setup will install Webroot Spy Sweeper (Subscriber's Version) to your computer. Continue setup?" message with a Yes or No selection.
  8. I'm shuddering at how many people recommended Frontpage for web design. You use that to massacre web sites, not design them. Probably the worst web design program I've ever seen! Firewall: McAfee Personal Firewall 2005 Anti-Virus: McAfee VirusScan 2005 Advanced Windows Tuning (software like tweakXP): Regedits? Download Utilities: I'm an American and I don't need one of these stinkin' things. E-Mail: Outlook 2003 Webdesign: Dreamweaver MX 2004 Graphics Development: Adobe Photoshop CS Hard-Drive optimization tools (defraggers for example): Diskeeper Windows error Checking (Like Norton Utilities): Never really liked any of them...
  9. Kind of old, but has anyone successfully done this before? I think I've tried most of the common switches, but nothing seems to work...
  10. It's so easy it's hard. In the seperate program files, like VSO, MPF, etc, the setup.exe in that folder will install silently and without prompts, so you need to call the setup.exe for each component (SpamKiller, VirusScan, Personal Firewall, Privacy) seperately. I haven't tested them all yet, but I'll try it tomorrow and let you know if it works. I think it should though.
  11. Your easiest way is definitely a cleanup script. Here's my AdAware section although I move the AdAware and AdWatch shortcuts to a folder called System and delete the rest of the AdAware folder. DEL "%UserProfile%\Desktop\Ad-Aware SE Professional.lnk" /q DEL "%UserProfile%\Desktop\Ad-Watch SE Professional.lnk" /q MOVE "%UserProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Professional\Ad-Aware SE Professional.lnk" "%AllUsersProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\System\Ad-Aware Professional.lnk" RD "%UserProfile%\Start Menu\Programs\Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Professional" /s /q
  12. Spoke with a McAfee tech support supervisor yesterday who informed me that MIS 2005 does not support an unattended installation and a switch to do so does not exist. I'm wondering if anyone here has found one or if I'll need to go with some other route.
  13. I've been looking to change my company name to something a bit more interesting. I've somewhat decided on the format, but I'd like to get a good word for the middle. I was wondering if you guys could help me. Ecstatic (fill in the blank) Studios Toss out ideas, suggestions, good, bad, etc. Just toss 'em out.
  14. Well, of course. But, are these icons the same size as the XP ones in terms of pixel dimension and showing up as selectable icons.
  15. Can you just install the Longhorn ones without removing the old folder? Are they the same size?
  16. I thought the .NET framework 1.0 was included with SP2. I remember seeing a netfx.exe in the compnents folder I think. Maybe it doesn't install, but the file is there at least.
  17. You need XP Pro for the following... Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove Windows Components | Internet Information Services (IIS). Install IIS by checking that box. If you go into IIS once it's installed you should be able to figure it out. You'll also need to forward port 21 to your computer's IP on your router.
  18. Gracias....ran a search for Weatherbug but came up with nothing.
  19. I've been using the /s switch to install this, but the newest version contains Weatherbug and WildTangent games, which I'd rather not install since they pop up upon installation. Does anyone know of a switch to not install these items or how I would go about doing this?
  20. @Simon No, those options appear for each item in the tray.
  21. I'd like to mention that jbright's mention on the first page of this thread works excellent for NIS2005. No problems whatsoever if you follow his instructions. I omitted the virus defs part to save space since I'm critically near 700 MB on my disc, and although I have to update the files after installation, it still works great.
  22. I've found that if you turn off the Windows Firewall, and let Kazza (Lite at least) sit for about 20 minutes it will finally connect. From then on it's a instant connection like usual. It's just that first time it has trouble with.
  23. Our network has recently been upgraded to XP rather than 2000 and we're experiencing VERY slow logoffs. Login is quick and painless, but logging off takes 5 minutes sometimes. Any ideas where to start? Event Viewer isn't being very helpful. No errors in there during logoff, so I'm guessing some service is having a hard time being shut down before the roaming profile can do its thing.
